What is the most appropriate way to handle charges when they hit a CCI Edit for "Mutually Exclusive Procedure" when a modifier is not allowed? Should the column 2 code be completely credited off the account or should the CPT code be adjusted off in billing?

I have utilized the resource you referenced in the past, so thank you, but I was really looking for a specific answer to my exact question. Completely credit off the charge or adjust off?

The credit off or adjust off is completely scenario specific. Having said that, some modifiers can be applied to CPT codes to allow reimbursements.
